The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud recently sat down with Alexis Lambert, the Communications Director for Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater. Lambert emphasized the importance of public outreach in spurring change to the public’s attention to insurance fraud. Lambert also specifically addressed the issue of PIP fraud on Floridians:
Since Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater took office in January of 2011, our key communications goal has been to educate Floridians about the impact of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) fraud on their bottom line. Although PIP fraud has been an issue in Florida for many years, we were surprised to find that many Floridians were not aware of the impact it was having on their auto insurance rates. As the public awareness grew, so did the outcries for reform.
